POSTCARD FROM ISTANBUL


This post is a little different to our usual posts. Although we have a passion for fashion, our other desire in life is to travel and see the world. Last year we decided to visit Istanbul in Turkey, the largest European city that stretches across both Europe and Asia. We wanted to explore a destination that had a different culture to what we see in England, because we are always thirsty to learn about aspects of the world you wouldn't see sitting at home. We stayed at a beautiful hotel called Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Istanbul - Old Town. This facility was filled with boutiques, a spa, a gym and we also got a complimentary cookie on arrival. 

During out time in Istanbul we visited many different locations, learning out their history and culture. These places included palaces, mosques, Grand Bazaar as well as crossing over the Bosphorus Bridge to Asia. It was lovely exploring a city that was vastly different to the cities that we have grown up in. Over the next couple of weeks we will be posting photos outside to destinations that we visited. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque and the Beylerbeyi Palace. Hope you enjoy!
